Concept: Balanced design and comfort / Environmentally Responsible Architecture.
The spacious inn was intended and designed to offer guests noble ancient local customs in perfect balance with comfort and quality.
It features adobe brick walls, clay and gypsum plastering, hand-made trims, natural-dye paint (free of synthetic and chemical products), roof beams made with snag, doors and windows hand-forged from recycled railroad tracks.
Based on an environmentally friendly architecture and bio-temperature control, the building is fitted with thermal insulation, solar water heating, collection of rainwater and water recycling for irrigation.
